BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

Lately, I've been feeling like I rotate the same 10 dinners, and needed to find some new recipes...ever feel like that? I came across a recipe for BBQ chicken quinoa salad, and had to give it a try. It was a hit with my husband, and it was very easy + fast (I used the crock pot for the chicken). 

this is the only (terrible) photo I have - it tastes MUCH better than this photo looks ;) 

bbq sauce
1 can black beans
1 can corn
cheddar/jack cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Cook chicken in crock pot for 7 hours on low (salt and pepper to taste), add BBQ sauce and shred chicken to mix with sauce, continue cooking on low for 1 more hour
2. Cook quinoa according to directions on package
3. Combine quinoa, chicken, black beans, and corn - mix well
4. Top with cheese, and avocado, and anything else you'd like
5. Serve, and enjoy!
